    Yesterday afternoon I started getting pains right across my waist under bump, with tightening feeling and back pain lasting roughly a minute and about 10 mins in between. Went on for hour and half then stopped. Started up again last night then stopped again. Am I just getting messed about by evil BH? Or maybe things gonna happen soon? They were different from normal BH too but just confused. :shrug:

    I was told that if they start and stop and are irregular they aren't real contractions, but at least your body seems to be getting ready so not too long now! I haven't had any signs yet, not even BH. :)

    What I thought, just getting my hopes up cause I've had braxton hicks from 20 wks but these were actually bit sore! Wish mother nature would just get a move on!!

    Could be the start, or could be 'pre-labour'. I don't think I've really even had Braxton Hicks contractions :-( I'll probably end up going into labour and just assuming it's Braxton Hicks!

    Honestly, could be anything.

    I had these a couple of weeks ago and they were timeable, lasting about 30 seconds and coming every 2mins 57 seconds but they fizzled out after about an hour and I now only get one every now and again.

    However....you're close to your due date so it could be the start of something.

    Just keep an eye on them and if they start to get regular and closer together, then woop! :happydance:

    I'm just glad I haven't called DH from work when I get this, he works an hour away and can't imagine he would be impressed lol

    Just wish I knew how they started for sure, with DD I was induced and so never went into labour myself. Everyone says you'll know, but I'm worried I won't know the difference :wacko:
